Mushrooms and Onions

Pin It
I'm a full believer that sometimes the simplest ingredients make the tastiest meals. I only sometimes make extravagant, full-blown meals and that's usually only for a special occasion or when we are having guests over. Most of the time, I take the long trek home from work, go for a run, and then finally get started on dinner. By that time, I don't have time to make extravagant, full-blown meals.

The main components of this dish are mushrooms and onions (as the title suggests...duh!), but somehow an amazing flavor develops in the cooking process. Garlic is one of my favorite things to cook with, so between that and the butter/olive oil, something magical happens! These are an extremely easy side dish and would work well with pretty much any entree. Or even on their own! Enjoy!


  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, sliced very thin
  • 2 tbsp. butter
  • 2 tsp. garlic, minced
  • 1 (8 oz.) package mushrooms, sliced
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. pepper
  • 1 tbsp. fresh parsley, chopped

Heat oil in a large skillet. Add onions and cook until softened, about 5 minutes.

Add butter to onions. Add garlic, mushrooms, salt and pepper. Cook for about 5 minutes or until mushrooms begin to soften. Add parsley and toss to combine. Serve immediately.
